Welcome to the UK Linguistics Olympiad


*Pronounced /juklou/

UKLO is a competition, like the Mathematical Olympiad or the National Cipher Challenge, for students who are still at school (or equivalent college) – any age, any ability level; but unlike other competitions, our competitors have to solve linguistic data problems. Thanks to our generous academic supporters, it’s completely free to both competitors and schools. The UK Olympiad also enters at least one team in the International Linguistics Olympiad.
